as is lyrics – peder eide

moses was a stutterer, david was a murderer, jeremiah’s suicidal, naked in the street
paul-y had a problem with specifics left unsaid,
timothy had stomachaches, and lazarus was dead.
samson was a long-haired, arrogant womanizer
rahab was a scarlet-courted lady on the street
john the baptist eatin’ bugs and honey on his bread
gideon a scaredy-cat, lazarus was dead

chorus:
as is, as is, he chooses us as his
as his, as his, infuses us as is
never ending love transcending on our weaknesses
no excuses, he uses us as is

noah was a drunk man, abraham an old man, jacob was a lying man, leah second best
jonah should’ve followed god but ran away instead
martha was a worry-wart and lazarus was dead

repeat chorus

jesus said to stay awake, they went to bed instead
peter turned and ran away, jesus hung and bled

as is, as is, he chooses us as his
as his, as his, infuses us as is {repeat twice}
never ending love transcending on our weaknesses
no excuses, he uses us, no excuses, he chooses us, no excuses, he uses us as is
